public groovy.lang.Closure getBeforeInterceptor(groovy.lang.GroovyObject controller)
Retrieves the before interceptor for the specified controller instance.
Parameters:
controller - The controller instance
Returns:
The before interceptor as a Closure or null if non exists


getCommandObjectActions

@Deprecated
@SuppressWarnings("rawtypes")
public java.util.Set getCommandObjectActions()
deprecated:
This method is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of Grails
